2014 Schedule

March

Todd Scheuring - UX research: building stuff for real people

March 19th - 5:30pm - University of Advancing Technology - Room# 205

Do you build stuff people will actually use? How do you know? Research comes in many shapes and sizes and should be at the heart of any UX process. From discovering new ideas to validating existing features, we’ll take a look at some of the most common UX research techniques and how to start implementing them. We’d also love to hear what kind of research you’ve been doing in your own process, so we’ll open it up to the floor to share ideas and stories afterward.

 

April

Tonia Bartz - Interaction 14 Redux

April 8th - 6-7:30pm  -  University of Phoenix Main Campus 1625 W. Fountainhead Pkwy - Rm.# 229

Regional IxDA Leader, Tonia Barz will take us through some of the highlights of IxDA Interaction 14

May 28th - Details TBD

 

June

Noah Dryer - Agile Process

 June 18th - 5:30-7:00pm - University of Advancing Technology - Room# 205

Agile? Waterfall? Scrum? You may have heard these terms in the context of project management, but what do they really mean? What is scrum?  Why should you use it?  How can you get started? What pitfalls should you avoid? Together we'll answer all these questions and more as we demystify terms like sprint, backlog, product owner, ScrumMaster, velocity, stand-up, retrospective, and more.

 

July

Robert Neal - Applied Cog Sci Frameworks

July 16th  - Details TBD

Usability Testing Company Recommendations

Hey guys,

Does anyone have a website or company they recommend for some down and dirty user feedback? I don't need great depth to this testing nor want to pay a fortune. I would like the ability to specify a few tester demographics such as: male, ages 35-50, moderately tech savvy and considering a car purchase.

Profile Pictures

It's time to do some summer cleaning and clean up your IxDA profile!

Likely through no fault of your own, many profile pictures are broken or non-existent. Please help contribute to the vibrancy of our local community and update your profile and picture. I just went and updated mine, and it all appeared to be working correctly.
